I have a Products Table which has a Status column . The Status defines whether the Item is damaged ,repaired,inMaintainance etc


Prd Id      Status      

1      damaged      
1      Repaired
2      damaged
3      inMaintainance

I was trying to build a query that would give me all the Parts that are damaged but 'not repaired'

select * from products where Status='damaged' And Status not in 'Repaired'

This would give me

Prd Id      Status
1      damaged
2      damaged

But I should not get Product Id =1 as Technically the product has been sent to Repair. The results should be

 Prd Id      Status
2      damaged
